's going to focus in his opening remarks on the debt ceiling. of course, also gun control and the chuck hagel for defense secretary nomination might come up. after a week of white house gun violence meetings, it's not clear if the president will seek to reinstate a ban on assault style rifles. even if he does opposition is hardening. >> do you think an assault weapons ban can pass the congress? >> no. >> do you think it should? >> no. >> reporter: west virginia democrat joe manchin, who sounded open to new gun control measures immediately after the newtown massacre now wants a slow moving washington commission. >> if you just want gun bans you're wrong. >> what do we need? >> we need a comprehensive approach. >> reporter: with sales of firearms that congress might ban now sky rocketing, a top senate democrat called for a voluntary moratorium. >> if we continue to see nearly 80,000 gun sales each month in states all over the country, it's going to be counterproductive to whatever solution we will implement. >> reporter: the new york legislature sped towards passa
